“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”

Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau
Collection Connaissance des Arts

First printing of one of the heaviest hitters of Interior Design books, the enormous, lavishly illustrated “Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau” (Collection Connaissance des Arts) published in 1973 is without a doubt one of the most collectable of 1970’s design books.

This huge, prestigious, cloth-bound volume travels through some of the world’s most incredible domestic interiors of the period, including those of major architects, interior designers, fashion designers, art and antiquities collectors, and more, showcasing objets d’art, historical artifacts and furniture (from Pablo Picasso, Mies van der Rohe, Lucio Fontana, Nicola L, Cesar, Jean Dubuffet, Arman, Gae Aulenti, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Enzo Mari, Pierre Paulin, Afra + Tobia Scarpa, Charles Eames, Joe Columbo, Verner Panton, Bruno Munari Afra Scarpa, Mario Bellini, Tom Wesselman, Sonia Delaunay, Man Ray) adorning decorated interiors ranging from “Tradition” (“a formula that allows one to integrate older items, furniture and artwork in a contemporary context”); “le Renouveau” (contemporary interiors of the 1970’s and “a section dedicated to design of the time offering a selection of the finest furniture, objects and accessories created by top designers”); and “l’Avant-garde” (displaying some of the most experimental, idiosyncratic, and forward-thinking interiors that bring together modern materiality, pop art and space design to create inspired interior living architectural spaces).
“How to reconcile antique furniture and contemporary structures? Can we adapt modern furniture within a traditionally inspired framework? This book, illustrated with beautiful photographs, mostly in color, reproducing the finest achievements of the great contemporary designers, responds to these questions.”
All texts in French.

A must-have for the interior design lover.

GI (GLOBAL INTERIOR) #5
Apartment Interiors, 1973


Rare fifth issue from 1973 (complete with original issue printed slip-case) of this now classic 1970’s architectural series, the great GI (Global Interior) from Tokyo, Japan.
One of the finest interior architecture journal series ever published, GI “The Series of Global Interior” came from the producers of the highly esteemed GA (Global Architecture), GA Document, GA Houses, etc. architectural publications.

GI was produced throughout the 1970’s in a total of ten volumes. Each large volume highlighted a selection of architectural projects by renowned international architects, some volumes focusing on a specific architect entirely, and highlighted their work for houses and domestic spaces.

Beautiful architectural photography of house interiors, exteriors and room details of living spaces, along with texts (mostly in Japanese) and floor-plans/elevation drawings make up the profiles on each featured building or environment. The visual generosity of these handsomely designed and printed journals (each more a book than a magazine) make them a treasure for any architecture or interior design enthusiast or collector.

Edited and Presented by Yukio Futagawa
